Any chance the Duke Blue Devils had of making the NCAA Tournament is likely gone after a positive COVID-19 test within the program.

According to multiple reports, Duke will not play on Thursday against Florida State and because of the positive test is now out of the ACC Tournament.

At 13-11, it appears Duke’s season is over. This would be the first time since 1995 that Duke did not make the NCAA Tournament.

At BetMGM, 10 percent of bets and 11 percent of the money was on Duke at 20-1 to win the ACC Tournament. Duke had the third-most bets at PointsBet to win the conference.

BetMGM is refunding all ACC Tournament bets on Duke. FanDuel will also void all ACC bets on Duke and is suspending the Blue Devils in the national championship market until the bracket is revealed.

The Blue Devils lost three straight games to end the regular season, but were impressive in the first two games of the ACC Tournament. Duke beat Boston College 86-51 in the opening round before beating Louisville 70-56 on Wednesday.

Bets on Duke to win the ACC Tournament are graded as a loss at PointsBet. Out of all teams, Duke was second in total bets on teams “To Make The NCAA Tournament”. The Blue Devils ranked 15th in total handle to win the NCAA Tournament.

Florida State, which has 36 percent of the handle, the most of any team, will move on in the tournament.

Books are sweating Georgia Tech the rest of the way, as the Yellow Jackets are the top liability at both BetMGM and PointsBet.
